This was fun to watch. I wonder how the 2.7 would have done against those jeeps.
I just bought a Bronco this weekend. I am absolutely shocked at how peppy the 2.7 is. It even sounds like it growls when I put the pedal to it. I hate to say this, but I am not missing my v8. It's that good IMO.

My husband was also very skeptical, but he was impressed as well. We both have 5.0s in our F150s. I kept my truck, so when I drive it again I will compare. I feel like there is a lot more pick up at the beginning than with my truck.

The two turbos move the torque curve way up on the 2.7 so that makes sense.

Yeah and then throw in the Jeep 3.0 Turbo Diesel so the Ford 2.7 TT can get a spanking. 🤣

Lol very true, I would like to see it all just for fun! Even the 392 just to watch that thing and compare. Obviously no one is buying these to race but just more real world comparisons are always good.

I’m sure i’m lTe to party but. Enjoyed the demo against jeeps. But i don’t want a jeep
How does the 2.3 v 2.7 compare on track. Not that speed is what i’m lookin for - but would be best comparison of what to buy. 🤔

Nobody ever said “dang, the engine I bought has too much power, wish I had gotten the smaller one”
That being said, I ordered a 2.7 😁

I don't know why I click on these drag race videos, even though the context of drag racing Jeeps and Broncos is absurdly stupid...

but I do! :ROFLMAO:

I've owned a 3.6 and now a 2.0T JL Wrangler. The 2.0 is plenty quick and the 2.3 seems basically the same. I never felt a need for anymore power but obviously not much downside to the 2.7.
